Procrastination: a powerful thing|

I'd love to see a *good* Modesty Blaise movie, but I'd rate the odds at poor-to-none. They're just the sort of thing where movie people would leave out all the good parts and insert gratuitous stupidities and ruin everything.
I'm sure Neil would do a good script, though. Maybe movie making is opening up enough that there's a better chance for things to be done right. Although the Patrick O'Brian movie didn't do anything to improve their reputation.
(Martin Schafer pointed me at the Blaise books.)
I've seen one collection of the comics, and from what little I looked at it seems like the comics version is missing most of what I like about the books.
